Welterweight Nate Marquardt hasn’t set foot inside the Octagon in more than two years. However, that will change this weekend when he faces Jake Ellenberger at UFC 158: St-Pierre vs. Diaz. Though Marquardt was last seen losing his Strikeforce title to Tarec Saffiedine and suffering a brutal assault on his legs in the bout, “Nate the Great” isn’t looking for an easy road to the top of the division and actually accepted the bout with Ellenberger with only about a month to prepare.

Even Marquardt is willing to admit it may not have been the wisest decision but, as he told the UFC’s website, it was definitely the right one.

“I guess the only hesitation was whether it was a smart move to take a fight against a top level guy on short notice. That’s the thing I had to look at most, and I feel like I made the right decision, especially now that I feel like I’m where I’m supposed to be.”

“He’s very tough, he’s strong, he’s powerful, he hits hard, he’s well-rounded, and there’s no easy game plan for him, like I could just take him down or I could just stand on the feet with him. I have to fight him every inch of the fight, and I have to look for my little spots to beat him.”

“If I looked at that fight, if it wasn’t my main game plan, it would be something I would try. So I’m not gonna be surprised when he comes out and throws a hard leg kick. I got away from that style of training for a period of time in my career and it wasn’t the right thing to do, especially fighting a guy like Tarec.”
